Andrew Pollack lost his 18-year-old daughter, Meadow, when a killer murdered 17 people at Stoneman Douglas High School last Valentine's Day. Kenneth Preston, 19, is a student in Broward County who has been trying to figure out what went wrong. Together, the unlikely friends brought together by tragedy are fighting for school safety in Florida.
Parkland parents, students, I went to the Broward School Board to seek answers for the potential negligence by Superintendent and Board prior to the tragedy at Stoneman. Instead of addressing our concerns, they prevented us from speaking. Read on to understand why. pic.twitter.com/Ppomdtl3BA

Pollack and Preston joined Doc and Kris on today's show to share their stories and explain their next steps for student advocacy. Students shouldn't be afraid to be in school. We know simply banning guns isn't a magical answer, so what can we really do to protect our kids?
"I want to make a change, and I think that's an objective we can all achieve," Pollack said.
Pollack has filed a wrongful death lawsuit related to his daughter's death and the reported failures that paved the way for the killer to murder 17 people. Learn more about the case with our explainer here.
